Seahawks enter Day 2 of draft in search of more picks

Tuesday, 01 May, 2018

Shaquem Griffin deservedly received the bulk of the attention when the Seattle Seahawks drafted the star linebacker with one hand in the fifth round and reunited him with his twin brother Shaquill.

Penny is a four-year running back from Mountain West program, San Diego State. It don't matter what the projections say.

POSTION SWITCH: It wouldn't be a Seattle draft without at least one player switching positions.

Dissly, recruited to Washington as a defensive lineman, played his final two years on offense, catching 21 passes for 289 yards and two scores as a senior.

Florida International QB Alex McGough was selected with Seattle's final pick, No. 220 overall in the seventh round. He led the nation with 2,248 yards rushing and 23 touchdowns for the Aztecs. Dissly was a three-year starter at tight end for the Hawks and a two-year starter at defensive end.

Though he thrived playing as an interior rusher last season, Green projects as a 4-3 defensive end due to his skill set and length. Recent drafts have been filled with more misses than hits and started to catch up with Seattle last season when the depth wasn't there to overcome key injuries.

Dissly also told 406mtsports.com that he is about 15 credits shy of earning his economics degree from Washington, something he plans to finish next offseason.

He will join a backfield that has no clear starter going into the season and that needs to rediscover a run game that has struggled since the end of Marshawn Lynch's time with the team.

"I personally prefer the outside, but I feel like I'm just as good inside as I am outside", Green said. The lack of a running game affected Wilson as a passer as well, as defenses didn't have to commit an extra safety to stopping the run, leading to smaller throwing windows and some tentative decisions by Wilson.

"I know they needed help and, like I said, I'm the guy for it".
